This talk explores ignorance as the first link in the circle of suffering or samsara.
From my experience I see that Ignorance appears at various levels.
- Not knowing the 4 noble truths – really knowing.
- Not knowing the true nature of the self construct
- Not knowing the true nature of external phenomena (all sense objects)
- Believing that any views one holds about reality is the actual reality of life. i.e. believing that emptiness is true.
